So, I was just looking up a bunch of tabs on here, you know like what at least a third of this site is used for (if not more).

When I came across Killing In The Name by Rage Against The Machine and found that every single type of tab for it (5 stars to 2 stars or guitar to bass) had been taken down due to copyright infringement.

My question to everyone (users and mods alike) is what the ****?

I could maybe see that if it was ripped directly from a tab book published by the band but to think that not a single person tabbed it out by ear on here is ridiculous.

To that extent, every tab that has been published in a book should be removed on here.

What is the world/wide web coming to?

Clearly, you haven't looked up the tabs for any Dethklok song.

Makes sense, considering they're shit.

Oh.

Well if you hit the print button that's below the tab and above the comments section, you can see the song.

I went to try out this pro-tip, when I noticed...

LED ZEP TABS ARE UNBLOCKED.

I was hoping for mass hysteria, this reaction is slightly underwhelming...

However, the 'print tab' tip is genius. I applaud your ingenuity sir.

I love how RATM should be all for free use in disseminating its message yet it's signed to people that sue and warn to sue based on copyright.

I was really pissed too when i saw all the RATM songs were copyright blocked... oh well, you can really learn it by ear if you tried and also there are a ton of vids on youtube explaining Tom's crazy effects he does.

Rage Against The Machine as well now?

How many others have been blocked?

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

There was another thread about this a few days ago - the RATM thing seems to be a different issue to the old Led Zep thing (it was giving a different message at least and they were accessible from countries all the other tabs were blocked in). I can access the RATM tabs from the UK without issues, so probably another localised thing.

Thats good news about the Zep tabs being active again, I just tried a couple of the other artists that used to be blocked & they all seemed to be working. That either means the legal issues have gone away....or the system that blocks them has broken & they'll disappear again when it's fixed.

Real men transcribe.


My best friend used to learn the songs off of a bands' MTV video. He's wait and watch for them to show the guitarist and pause/rewind until he thought he knew the notes.

As stupid as this method was because more often than not, the finger postions aren't accurate in a video, he'd get the song down somehow.

He learned three Dokken songs this way by watching George Lynch and to this day, I still have no idea how.

It was smaller then.


Why is nobody pointing out the irony that of all bands to subject UG to this, it's RATM?
